Nier: Automata is on sale for $30 on Steam for the next couple of weeks.  I haven't played this game and don't plan to buy it at that price, it was reportedly one of the better games of 2017, and I believe this is its first major discount.

This month's free-with-twitch-prime games are Psychonauts, High Hell, Gone Home, "I, Hope", Clustertruck, Titan Souls, and Battlerite.  Of those I have only heard of Psychonauts (I've played it, great game, not the most polished engine) and Gone Home (haven't played it, have heard good things, think I already own it on Steam).

gog.com is giving away Xenonauts for free for a few days.  It's a strategy game along the lines of X-COM.  They are also having a big summer sale.

twitch.tv's free-with-Prime games this month are Banner Saga 1 and 2, Strafe, Tumblestone, and Treadnauts.

Twitch Prime's free games this month rotate by relatively short date ranges, so it makes sense to check in each day.  Right now is:

* Pillars of Eternity Definitive Edition (July 2-4)
* Q.U.B.E 2 (July 3-9)
* SNK Bundle (Metal Slug 3 and a couple of other games I don't recognize at all) (July 3-August 2)

The Steam autumn sale has started, ending early November 27.  There's a pretty picture on their store page, if nothing else.  From my wishlist, I see Rise of the Tomb Raider for $12 (80% off) which I believe is a new low price.

Blizzard also has discounts on a bunch of stuff until November 26.

I noticed something about Steam bundles that I hadn't noticed before.  I don't know if it's new, but I thought it was worth remarking on.  [ETA: apparently it's about two and a half years old.]

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is on sale for just under $15.  This bundle includes Borderlands 2, Pre-Sequel, and all of their DLC.  (Not Borderlands 1, oddly.)  When I go to the store page for it, it offers it to me for $5.48, because I already own the base games and much of the DLC.  It breaks it down as:

* Individual price of the 37 items you don't already have: $38.73
* Bundle discount: 86%
* Your cost: $5.48

Those 37 items are mostly skins that sell for a dollar, so this isn't an amazing deal for me, but I may pick it up for the BL2 content DLC that I don't have (which would cost a couple dollars more if I bought them individually without the 86% discount).  Mostly I thought it was cool that Steam prorates bundles.

Subnautica is free on Epic's new game launcher for a week.  Next week Super Meat Boy will be free, I believe.

(I think you can also claim these via the web.  I already had the launcher installed because I thought about playing Fortnite once.)
